Our Transformers line will be getting quite a few new additions over the next few weeks so we're starting off with another main men, er, robots in the line. This one is our best seller in our Decepticons Line!
Don't worry Megs, you still get mad props at J-Mart, no matter how much they made you suck at the end of the movie series.

Megatron and the other Cybertronians sometimes have problems grasping the culture of Earth

Ruling the world, restoring Cybertron and proving himself to be Prime's superior
The Cybertronians are vulnerable to Magnetic attacks, taking at extra degree of failure against them

The one thing I don’t like about the last two Transformers movies is the way that Megatron has fallen off from a major badass to secondary antagonist to merely a scheming shell of himself in the last film. He was probably at least a PL up on OP in the first movie, then the second, even though he kills OP, had a lot of help and OP was winning most of the time. In the final fight, he really takes a whoopin’ from Prime, even with the help of the Fallen. In this last movie, it’s not even a real fight, OP pwns him pretty easily. So he probably went from PL15, to PL13 to PL12, really. Either that or OP went the opposite way. Go fig.
Anyway, this Megatron is meant to go toe-to-toe with Prime and any other big hitters of the DCA Thorpacoverse. OP has the better defense, but Megatron is better on offense. I built his skills an advantages to be more about flexing his brute strength and force of will than being a manipulator. That’s Starscreams role. I based Megatron’s Inspire on the fear he puts in his troops, not his planning or his charisma. You kick ass or he eats your spark. THAT’S Inspiration.
Can’t wait to play him. But alas, I have 20 more Transformers to go (at least), so it will have to wait.
